Welcome to the Fight Shack Vibe!

Welcome to Fight Shack

Welcome to Fight Shack and our online products and programs - we are here to help you meet your training goals.

Fight Shack is driven by a passion for martial arts and coaching, and a lifetime of training and helping others on their journey.

Our aim is to use our experiences to provide you with programs, tips and advice, to keep your training varied, keep you motivated, keep it fun.

We have 3 main types of courses including: 

  • Solo training and skills development

  • Martial Arts cross training courses - integration of striking, throwing, grappling and submissions with emphasis on self defence and for MMA

  • Fitness and conditioning to get you fighting fit

Everything in our online courses is functional and adaptable - our fitness courses are designed to work at home, in hotels, at the park, and down at the gym.

Our courses are routed in Boxing, Kickboxing, Judo and Wresting and influenced by over 30 years of coaching across Swimming, Football, Rugby and Martial Arts.... and my current training as a 4D Combat Instructor under the wonderful Bob Breen.

Fight Shack training courses are a reflection of that training and experience, focussing on tools for training and key tips and drills that make it all work. Everything we train we show you, and if it doesn’t work, we don’t do it!   

Staying fit, juggling family life, and moving forward in a career with International travel has not been easy and over the years I have had to be creative.    The good news is there’s always a way to get the work done - and with a smile too.    My thinking has always been that if it isn’t fun (or a challenge) you won’t do it!     

Our fight training also reflects a personal journey.   I’ve been lucky enough to train with World class fighters and coaches over an 18 year period and establish myself as a lead instructor for Bob Breen and his 4D Combat total stand up fighting system.

If you want to know how I travelled the world with my job, spent quality time with my wife, kids (and dogs!), stayed fit, and still managed to get a black belt under one of the worlds leading martial artists and coach, this is it!   

I hope you enjoy looking through our courses and that you find something that works well for you.  Feel free to contact us with comments and questions….. if we can help in anyway we will.

It's great to have you with us....let's get training!

Peace and Love

Throws for Self Defence


Jeff Bleathman

Hi, I'm Jeff Bleathman
I'm a coach of over 30 years experience across multiple sports including swimming, rugby and martial arts.

My passion has always been martial arts and fight training and I have continually cross trained to find what's truly functional.

I established Fight Shack in 2016 after a lifetime of combining a busy professional and family life with contact sports, fitness and conditioning training, and coaching. There has been so much fun along the way - mistakes have been made and its been exhausting at times - but hugely rewarding. Fight Shack Online is my way of bringing some of that experience to you to help with your training, motivation and achieving your goals.

I’m a Black Belt under Guro Bob, and a pioneer of his incredible 4D system. I'm also a Level 1 coach in Combat Submission Wrestling under Coach Erik Paulson, Blue belt in Judo under Paul Jones School of Judo and part of the Legit Pro Wrestling Catch Coach License program under Coach Chris Crossnan.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions here:

What people say about Fight Shack

A few stand out. One of those is undoubtedly Jeff Bleathman.

Bob Breen Creator 4D Combat Master Instructor JKD & Kali

I can't recommend him highly enough. He’s been my sounding board and test bed through lots of the recent developments of my 4D approach to JKD and Kali. He knows how it works and has shared that experience with his own incredibly lucky students.

"I make it a point to get Jeff over to my academy any time he is in the US"

Kevin Blackbourn, School Manager for Cho’s Tae Kwon Do, Houston, Texas Combat Submission Wrestling Affiliate  4D Combat Affiliate

I have been training in Martial Arts for the vast majority of my life and have had the privilege of training with some of the best out there, so when I say that Jeff Bleathman is an amazing instructor, I mean it.

We haven’t stopped talking about it since you left!

RAPTR 4D Combat Belfast

Thanks so much for the seminar - it was excellent - just exactly the right level and pace for our group....I think for the first time I got a real sense of how 4D can really change our game.

"I find Jeff''s teaching very exciting and positive"

Paul Jones Ex-GB International Level 3 Judo Coach Owner - Paul Jones School of Judo

The style in which Jeff teaches is fun and very intuitive and makes classes very easy to learn the moves. I have been a teacher for over 30 years myself and find Jeff''s teaching very exciting and positive.

Jeff has become a regular feature at our 4D seminars in Edinburgh as well as delivering his own workshops with us.

Rannoch Donald 100 Rep Challenge 4D Combat Edinburgh

We've come on leaps and bounds over the last year with Jeff teaching in his own inimitable style, encouraging and including everyone, whatever their background, style and experience.

Highly recommended.

​Richard Fitzpatrick Fight Shack student

Outstanding group, fun sessions and excellent coach, even for a co-ordination-challenged individual like me.
